Reply today announced that it has been chosen as a winner of the SAP and Google Glass Challenge for its successful development of an enterprise wearable app using SAP HANA® Cloud Platform and Google Glass Explorer Edition technologies. Reply was selected from among more than 70 entries.

As an SAP partner in the SAP PartnerEdge program, Reply developed its application leveraging tools and resources from SAP, including SAP HANA Cloud Platform and Google Glass.

“With our POS solution, the shelf survey process in the consumer packaged goods and retail industries is simplified and speeded up considerably. The sales representative gathers the information in a convenient way, with a direct view of the products on the shelf, and saves time,” said Dr. Rolf Sundermeier, partner at Reply. “Integrating the Reply Category Management solution with SAP HANA Cloud Platform and the backbone is simple and makes the solution accessible to the broad customer base of SAP.”

The Android-based app for Google Glass enables sales representatives to directly capture the information required on the status of the shelf at a glance, meaning that complicated handling of hardware is rendered unnecessary, as is scrolling to find products in the software. Higher sales in the outlet and in the category are supported thanks to immediate measures introduced by the sales representative and to the more reliable figures in the category management database.
